A Nevada living will, or “declaration,” is a health care planning document that communicates to health care workers and agents a definitive choice to either withhold/withdraw life-sustaining treatments or to continue administering them. This document is only applicable if the attending nurse or doctor has determined that the principal has an incurable and irreversible condition and that the treatments provided are only serving to prolong the process of dying. It is necessary that such a document be signed while the principal is of sound mind, or else it will be deemed null and void.
